Notes & Reviews:

Principal cellist of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Jonathan Aasgaard is an equally distinguished soloist and a notable arranger, talents in evidence on his previous AVIE release, From Jewish Life (AVR 2149), on which he solos in Bloch's Schelomo and Bruch's Kol Nidrei, and his own arrangement of Bloch's Prayer. His new two-CD set of the complete works for cello and piano by Brahms includes the composer's Sonatas as well as arrangements of the popular Hungarian Dances, a selection of Lieder, the First Violin Sonata, and the Andante from his Second Piano Concerto. His superb partner is pianist Martin Roscoe.

MusicWeb International
A highly accomplished, indeed aristocratic, player.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2014
There is not a sentence started by Aasgaard that Roscoe leaves unfinished; no question unanswered...More than usual, therefore, it is important not to understate the value that Martin Roscoe adds to this recording with his utterly faultless playing. He makes you properly listen.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The lieder collection arranged by Mister Anonymous is straightforward and beautiful. Brahms's most memorable melodies are given a chance to shine. This is a lovely recording of the sonatas; and the transcriptions.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2014
The best performance here is an extraordinary rendition of the First Violin Sonata. Transferred to the cello's upper strings, and played with limpid elegance, its musing character is given an amplified radiance I'd not heard before.
